They didn't sign up for this.

I think the massacre going on along the Gaza strip has gone far enough. Everyone knows that certain parties take advantage of wars by supplying huge amounts of weaponry to the highest bidder. With this year's global recession just around the corner, it's a gold rush for whoever is doing the supplying.

In war, civilian deaths remain one of the elements that's usually questionable. They never signed up to their respective government's propaganda but they're in harm's way anyway. The death toll has gone beyond extrapolation as attacks have been done in densely populated areas. It is really a sad sight to see both Israel and Palestine taking brutal military action against one another when their focus should be somewhere else.

Peace on Earth, anyone?
